After Lil Wayne’s health scare on Friday, the way things played out left a lot of people confused. The one thing that seemed positive about the whole thing was a tweet from Lil Wayne’s account that said, “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”
But there has been speculation that the tweet was not sent by Wayne himself, and now Mack Maine has revealed to XXL that he can’t confirm whether or not it was Wayne. “That tweet wasn’t sent out on that same phone line,” the Young Money president explained. “I’m not sure if he tweeted that or not. I wasn’t with him at the present moment. One of his fans could have tweeted that, I’m not really sure where that came from.”
Mack couldn’t say much more, but ensured that Wayne is in recovery, not ICU, and that they’ll release an official statement once things settle down. “He’s in the hospital regularly, [not ICU]. I can’t really give a comment on his situation right now because we’re not really sure, we’re just standing by him right now. Like I said, he’s in recovery as far as we know, so we’re just sitting back, just waiting until he’s come fully recovered before we can give a statement.”
UPDATE: Birdman spoke with Angie Martinez about the situation. He explains that Wayne is doing much better, and that the seizure was caused by all of Wayne’s non-stop working, not drugs.
UPDATE 2: TMZ confirms Wayne is out of the intensive care unit and is now walking and eating on his own.
UPDATE 3: Mack Maine says he never talked to XXL.
